“Kate Preftakes’ use of light is nothing short of genius”

Style Me Pretty

We loved everything about Kate. She's an absolute pleasure to work with, really friendly, and very unobtrusive during our ceremony and reception. And the pictures are gorgeous. We recommend her wholeheartedly!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for these gorgeous images! I've watched the slideshow about a billion times, and that snowy picture on Facebook is breathtaking. Everyone was talking about how seamlessly you fit into the day, and how easy and fun the photos were. I was nervous about feeling posed or awkward in front of the camera, but all of that vanished when you got there. We couldn't be happier with all that you've done, and by the end of the day it felt like we'd known you for years. Thanks again, and if there's anything I can do in terms of writing reviews, etc., let me know! I also wanted to share this piece of an email I got from a friend who was at the wedding: I didn't think there was any way photos could do justice to your wedding, but then I got to see those photos today and was completely blown away. So, so gorgeous. She did an amazing job capturing the joy
of the festivities.
Anyways, thanks again!!

Ok- those photos are AMAZING!!! Wow- you did such a fantastic job! My family and friends are obsessed with them- they keep asking for more. I could not be more pleased with how these photos came out- you are so talented!!! I will tell my friends about the blog posts too, and I will definitely be giving you good reviews on every single review website I can find!

Ohmygosh! thank you, they are so perfect. Life is beautiful and we will treasure the glimpse of ours that you captured. I wish we had done this earlier, we'll do it again for sure. Can't wait to show our families, you rock!!

Michelle and Andrew

Kate is so incredibly talented! Having her with us to capture our day was the best wedding vendor choice we could have made. She is delightful to work with, easy going and fun. Browsing through our photos after our wedding brought back so many emotions and memories from the day, and we can't thank her enough for all the amazing shots she delivered. She is a gem!

FAQS

WHAT'S YOUR STYLE?

My style is a blend of fine art and documentary photography. I have a degree in fine art photography and I love to document weddings in a natural, timeless fashion. I keep my formal portraits to a minimum and have a relaxed style. I want you to remember all the details of your day and love to capture those in a beautiful way!

WHAT DO YOUR PACKAGES INCLUDE?

I offer three different wedding packages to accommodate a variety of weddings. All the packages include me as the main photographer, a second photographer, final edited images on a online viewing gallery and a small album. If a particular package isn't right for you let me know and we can adjust it as necessary.

DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE SHOOTING IN VARIOUS LIGHTING SITUATIONS?

Absolutely! Over the course of my 15 years of shooting weddings I have had to work with all types of lighting (and weather)! I always try to find the beautiful natural light if available but I also have lights that I bring with me and can set up.

How many photographers do you work with?

All of my wedding packages include a second photographer. I think it's so important to have a second perspective on the documentation of the wedding but also the help and backup. My mom has been my second shooter for most of my weddings over the past 12 years :)

YOU’RE THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR US! HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING OR PORTRAIT DATE?

Send me an email or give me a call! We can chat about which package works best for you. Once we decide I require a deposit and a signed contract to hold your date.

DO YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE ALL DAY COVERAGE?

No. I offer a variety of timelines with my packages but in my experience it is not necessary for me to be there from the first cup of coffee until the last song of the night. I don't think you would actually want me there that long! I have found that it is best to determine the most important aspects of the day and work the coverage around those. I typically start a minimum of 2 hours prior to the ceremony, preferably longer. I feel that many of the special, beautiful moments happen on the front end of the day.
